I hear the lobster in SF is amazing, wonder where is the best places to have it?
Crab, not lobster, is the SF specialty. If you want lobster, go to Boston or Maine. You can get lobster here, and probably decent lobster, but it will be expensive.
Thanks guys for your feedback. Crab it is :)
Anyone want to join me when i reach SF?
Lobster is not native to these parts so it will be expensive just about anywhere you order it. For example, Lobster Tail (Australian) is $57 at Scoma's Restaurant!! And it's not on the menu at McCormick & Kuleto's. And both of these places are what I consider to be "rip off" tourists places anyway.
Lobster is on the menu at Harris' Restaurant but is priced daily (I would expect it to be more than Scoma's.). However, Harris' has a lovely atmosphere and if this is a special occasion I think you would like it.
I guess my message is, if you really want it, be prepared to pay for it. And quite frankly, at that price, it's really not worth it.
